Wil Hahn To Have Surgery

CORONA, Calif. — Recently crowned 250SX East Supercross champion Wil Hahn will not be joining his GEICO Honda teammates for the beginning of the AMA Pro Motocross Championship season next week at Hangtown because he’s scheduled to undergo surgery on a broken hand.

“It’s a real bummer for sure,” Hahn said. “I had so much momentum going for me after finishing on the podium at every Supercross race and we won the championship. I wish there was another way around it, but for my long term heath, surgery right now is my best bet.”

Hahn broke his hand during the final practice at the Supercross finale at Sam Boyd Stadium last weekend. Hahn was able to gut out the East main event, finish third and clinch the title by a handful of points. He did sit out the East-West shootout, however.

“I’m just thankful it’s not as bad as it could have been,” Hahn said. “It doesn’t take anything away from the weekend I had in Vegas. I’m still pumped about winning the title.

“I’m still trying to sort through all the text messages, voicemails and tweets congratulating me on the championship. My family, friends and the fans have been awesome, and I can’t thank everyone enough.”

On Wednesday, Dr. Arthur Ting, orthopedic surgeon and team doctor for the NHL’s San Jose Sharks, is scheduled to insert a plate to stabilize the broken bone in Hahn’s hand.

The recovery time for the injury is three to four weeks, and Hahn said he’s targeted a return date of June 22 for the Budds Creek National in Mechanicsville, Md.
